Feliz Dia de Madre!
Today is Mother’s Day here in Guatemala. A few of our boys and some of the girls wished me a Happy Mother’s Day. Two girls were even handing out tamales to all the moms at Casa (thank you to whoever provided those!). But the best gift of all came from our jefes and my husband. After supper, Lee drove Jim and one of our jefes on a secret mission to get my gift. I was told that when they got back I would have to close my eyes. When they got back they decided I needed to leave the room instead. After a couple of minutes they called me back into the room and there on my table was a big black bag with a note attached. After some jokes about always wanting a big black bag, I did the unveiling. They blessed me with a beautiful set of six matching cups and saucers and a set of six beautiful glasses. Hmmm, wait a minute….6 cups and glasses…6 jefes…hmmm! Sorry guys, you don’t get to use them…at least for a little while.
